Tents Erected in Utah Polygamous Town Where Evictions Served
Hildale resident Guy Timpson said he saw about 25 tents, along with mostly women and children, pitched on the property Thursday night.
Hildale and adjoining Colorado City, Ariz., are home of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Much of the homes and property in the two towns are held in a trust called the United Effort Plan.
The state of Utah seized the trust in 2005 over concerns that FLDS President Warren Jeffs was mismanaging the trust and people were at risk of losing their homes.
